Pair of Shelley Tea Plates or Cake Plates. Edwardian China Green Side Plates. Pretty Green Shelley Plates. Perfect For A Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

A pretty pair of very sought after Edwardian era china tea plates, by highly collected and very famous English pottery Shelley. These plates have the most gorgeous green floral transfer pattern, on a bright white background. They would look fabulous on display, especially if you love Edwardian vintage and and want to add a touch of 1910s style to your home!

The Shelley factory has always had an eye for fashion and produced a range of china that always reflects the style and fashions of its era, with especially beautiful floral designs. I love this shade of green, it stands out so vividly on the plate and its easy to imagine them in an English Edwardian parlour on the tea table.

These plates are very eye catching. They would work especially well for a bright and cheerful tea time or tea party.

*The price shown is for the pair of plates. Please note that on the photos there appears to be a small mark in the centre of one of the plates. This is was a speck of dust present when I photographed them, which I should have noticed. It is not a flaw in the plate and has since been brushed off.*

Condition ~

Good antique condition, no chips or crazing to the glaze. The pattern is in good condition, though the pattern on one of the plates has slightly more wear and is slightly paler in tone (though the same shade of green), which has arisen with age and use. Photo 4 shows both plates next to one another for comparison - the paler plate is the one in the top right. As you can see, the difference in tone is only small. Photo 5 shows a close up of this plate with the slightly paler pattern. They are still a very pretty pair and deserved to be loved and used again. There is some wear to the rim gilding, commensurate with age and use. **Please do remember that these plates are not in pristine brand new condition. They are vintage and beautiful and the wear reflects their tea party history and character. Each pair of plates is in perfectly sound condition.** Any blemishes are a result of the contemporary manufacturing process and reflect the item's age and era. Please ask for further photos.

Dimensions ~

Each plate measures 17.8cm (or 7 inches) in diameter. Approx.
